Life Is Amazing

Imagine if birds never existed. Imagine if everything else on earth was exactly as it is except for one thing – no birds.

Then imagine if one day, all of a sudden, you saw a bird. That would be pretty amazing wouldn’t it? I mean it would have to be the most amazing thing you had ever seen in your life wouldn’t it?

Imagine if right now, while you are reading this, it jumped up on your table and started talking to you in perfect English in a way that showed it was highly intelligent. How amazing would that be?  I mean it would be incredible wouldn’t it, there’s not much that could top that is there?

The really cool part is that birds and cats and trees and people and the sea and everything else on the earth and beyond already are that amazing.

You just have to notice it.
